Fat transfer breast augmentation is also known as natural breast enlargement. Compared with breast augmentation within implants, fat transfer to the breasts involves using your body’s fat to enhance the size of your breasts. Breast fat transfer is a minimally invasive procedure carried out under a general anaesthetic. The procedure takes approximately 2 to 3 hours to perform and is a day case procedure which means you can go home the same day and recover in the comfort of your own home. Breast fat transfer has much smaller incisions than breast enlargement with implants as the injection of fat only requires incisions no more than 2 to 3 mm in length compared with the incision needed to place implants that can be 4 to 5 cm in length.
Although breast enlargement with implants is still the most popular method of increasing the volume of your boobs, fat transfer is an increasingly popular option for women not keen on the idea of implants. One of the most common questions we get asked is “how much does fat transfer breast augmentation cost?” compared with breast implant surgery. Centre for Surgery is the leading cosmetic surgery clinic in London with expertise in all types of fat transfer procedures, including fat transfer to the buttocks. Fat transfer surgery is a specialist procedure which should only be carried out by a surgeon with significant skills and experience. Compared with breast implant surgery, fat transfer breast enlargement requires different techniques to inject fat, and many years of training are required to perform this type of surgery successfully.
How much does breast fat transfer cost UK?
Breast fat transfer cost depends on several factors, and an accurate price for fat transfer can be given once you have had a face-to-face consultation with an expert fat transfer surgeon in London. Generally, prices for fat transfer to breast start at £6500. The procedure involves the removal of fat with liposuction from areas of the body which have excess fat deposits. Fat transfer cost can be determined by the number of regions of liposuction required. Patients having fat removed from many areas such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, or buttocks will cost more than liposuction from one or two areas. Some patients may have limited fat reserves as they are very slim, and the fat transfer to breast procedure may not be appropriate for them.
Once the fat has been collected with liposuction, the fat is purified, and any impurities are removed, such as blood and local anaesthetic solution. The prepared fat is injected into the breasts using specialised microcannulas. The incisions used to carry out breast fat transfer are tiny compared with the incision for breast implants. Scarring after fat transfer surgery is much less compared with breast implant surgery. Once you have been examined by your surgeon and a treatment plan has been designed, your dedicated patient coordinator will give you a clear idea of breast fat transfer cost.

Should I go to Turkey for breast fat transfer?
When considering fat injection cost to the breasts, it is crucial to remember that this is a highly specialised treatment that requires an expert surgeon to carry out safely and effectively. Fat transfer to the breasts involves several steps, including:
- Liposuction is used to remove excess body fat from other parts of the body, such as the stomach, hips or thighs.
- Some of the removed fat will undergo further processing to extract regenerative cells.
- The purified fat is commonly used in conjunction with the regenerative cells to form an enhanced fat graft which optimises graft survival rates.
- The fat is expertly injected into targeted areas of the breast for volume enhancement.
These steps need to be carried out meticulously to ensure that the vital fat has the highest possible chances of survival. Clinics who carry out cheap breast fat transfer procedures, as is often found in Turkey, are often taking shortcuts when performing the fat transfer procedure. If any step of the treatment is not done correctly, this significantly increases the chance of increased fat cell loss. This means that patients may need to have a repeat procedure to replenish the lost volume, which will add further expense for the patient.
